This multimedia program blends lively cross-cultural stories, research and discussion on coming-of-age during Integration in ethnically diverse Florida. This will be a non-confrontational dialogue.
Drawing on an archive of over 125 oral histories of Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians and Caribbeans from a variety of heritages as well as candid intergenerational video and audio interviews on race relations experiences, Dr. Kitty Oliver explores how far we’ve come and how progress can be made in a hopeful way that inspires our youth.
As a creative kick-off for or wrap-up to a community event or series, this program is informative, entertaining and thought-provoking.
